    WHERE ARE THE SUPERHEROES?!!!?!?!?!!WHERE ARE THEY.(If you didn’t read that in Michael Scott’s where-are-the-turtles voice from The Office, please go back and try again.)This was, like, shockingly un-superhero-y. When I read a book called The Supervillain and Me, I am expecting hijinks. I am expecting powers. I am expecting flight and invisibility and super-strength and lots of fight scenes in which people, like, getting punched through windo...

    The Supervillain and Me was playful, fun and crazy addicting. This book was so easy to devour and I loved how the mystery surrounding the supervillain had me flipping through the pages even faster. The action moments were perfectly sprinkled here and there and I adored how character driven this book was. I always find myself falling for those the hardest and that's exactly what I did with The Supervillain and Me. Regardless of who he was with or ...

    I thought this book sounded amazing but I didn't expect a lot from it. I definitely didn't expect to love it as much as I did. This book was so much fun to read and I loved every second it of. I couldn't put this book down and I never wanted it to end. I loved the concept of this book. I love superheros and I thought the idea of superheros being a common thing was awesome. I loved the characters so much and I loved the dialogue between the charac...

    Summed up in three words: Generic Superhero Book. Don’t get me wrong, The Supervillain and Me was fun, it really was. But it was also flighty and frivolous and flat and… you get the point. You know that one movie, Sky High? It had a bunch of no-name actors, from what I remember, and it was about a white boy attending a school full of superheroes. I really liked it when I was little. This book reminds me of that movie. It’s very light-hearte...
  • Samantha (WLABB)
    I expected something fun and cute, when I read this book, but I also got a story with a lot of heart, and a reminder that we can all be some sort of superhero.• Pro: Abby was so complicated. She had all these feelings, which were in constant conflict with each other, and Banas did a great job helping her work through some of them. I loved that when the going got tough, Abby dug in and came out with her fists up. • Pro: This story had that old...
  • Christine Manzari
    I really loved this book. It was fun and quirky. I had one lingering question at the end of the book, an assumption that was overlooked and not answered, but I have a feeling it will be answered in the next book.

    This was fantastic! I absolutely loved it.

  • Olivia (The Candid Cover)
    After discovering a newfound love of superhero books, The Supervillain and Me by Danielle Banas caught my eye. The book follows a girl who partners with the town’s “villain,” and the main character is likeable. I especially enjoyed the setting and how believable it is. If you are a fan of superhero books like I am, I would definitely recommend this one.Full review on The Candid Cover
  • All Things Urban Fantasy
    THE SUPERVILLAIN AND ME promised a light, fun read about superheroes from the point-of-view of someone ordinary. And while that is true, the majority of the novel takes place at Abigail's high school, focusing more on the drama of auditioning for a play and dealing with potential crushes than on superheroes and villains.A quick read, THE SUPERVILLAIN AND ME is predictable and not always in a fun way. Abby is clumsy, caught in a potential love tri...

    I was sent an early copy of this from Fierce Reads in exchange for an honest review.I always gravitate towards superhero stories and this definitely didn't disappoint. I could not put this book down! When I started it I felt like I knew who the guy behind the mask was and I am so glad I was wrong. I enjoyed the progression of every character and the ending. Hopefully there's a second book soon because I need more! I also need and Iron Phantom art...

    Abby Hamilton's brother is Red Comet, the superhero in charge of saving the city. And her father is the mayor of the crime-ridden city. All's going well, until a new super shows up—and rescues Abby right before he burns down city hall. But the Iron Phantom tells Abby he's not a bad guy, he's actually a good guy. And he's hot...UNPOPULAR OPINION ALERTThis is a DNF at 68%. Maybe it gets better, maybe it doesn't. I already got past one big reveal,...

    **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs:**The Supervillain and Me is the first book in the young adult superhero fantasy by Danielle Banas, called the Morriston Superheroes series. I missed yesterday's top ten tuesday post, which was top ten books of far. But if I had gotten my post up, this book would have for sure made this list! I loved The Supervillain and Me so, so much!

    As soon as I saw The Supervillain and Me on NetGalley, I knew I had to read it. I'm a die hard superhero fan and a die hard YA fan, so the combination of the two was practically screaming my name. I started reading it the minute I was approved...and finished it two hours later. I can already tell you that Danielle Banas is going to become one of my insta buy authors--her writing style has to be one of my favorite that I've read in a while, and I ...

    Thanks to SwoonReads for the ARC!I would say this is my favorite book that I have read in 2018 so far. Pretty predictable, but also very cute. If you like super heroes and teen romance, pick this one up.
  • Lissa Hawley
    Absolutely adorable. What a great story.
  • Cambear
    The title is a little cheesy, but don’t let that scare you away from a cute and fun romance with a bit of mystery I love how Abby thinks of her superhero brother as a lovable dork. It makes this a very grounded and normal story about superheroes and supervillains. For added fun, there’s the flirtation and mystery surrounding the mysterious new super in town. Some minor quibbles with Abby’s classes (who takes statistics and anatomy in high s...

    **I received this as an egalley from the publisher through Edelweiss in return for an honest review.**I honestly did not intend to read this book so soon, considering it doesn’t come out until July, but for some reason I couldn’t stop thinking about it and so I picked it up to see if reading the first chapter would satisfy my craving for a bit. It ended up sucking me in instead and somehow I couldn’t put it down. And while the story is very...

  • Adeline Roffo
    I was so lucky to have won this book in a Goodreads giveaway! I absolutely loved it. Once I picked up this book, I couldn't stop myself from reading. This was a bad idea (since I had finals to study for in school) and was under time pressure. Instead of studying, though, I found myself flipping through the book, eager to see what the next page brings. At one point, I realized that I really needed to study, so I painstakingly put the book down. Ho...
  • Cynthia Parkhill
    I thought this story worked best as an adventure-thriller, in which Abby (the main protagonist) and “Iron Phantom” (the titular “supervillain”) both contribute toward investigating a threat to their community.Abby’s contribution is especially valuable because she’s not a superhero, but she still manages to hold her own. I think that’s a powerful message to reinforce among readers who might feel “less-than” on whatever scale of q...

  • Siobhan
    The Supervillain and Me was super cute. The romance was swoony and drawn out just enough to make me keep guessing. The story discusses loss, and how people deal with loss, and how even "ordinary" people can be heroes. I would love more stories set in this world of superheroes! Recommended for anyone who likes a mystery, cute romance, or if you enjoyed reading the Renegades, you'll probably like this book. Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley ...
